Takeshi Kitano Japan, 2010

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Outrage

Wonderful! The delusional plans of power-hungry phalluses get twisted into a comically absurd, semi-slapsticky series of backstabs—until the story becomes so brutal that laughter is no longer an option. Act now, and we'll throw in an ominous, minimal synth score that John Carpenter would be proud to call his own. Inventive genre cinema...it's my first Kitano, and I'll be coming back.
